United have always been linked with a move for Rose, who is now back in the Spurs squad following a lengthy injury lay-off, and another attempt to strike a deal could be made next month.

But, reports in recent hours suggest Manchester United are convinced they can sign Rose in January.

Prior to his horrific injury, ex United coach Louis Van Gaal had questioned Shaw's fitness and often criticised the defender for what he deemed to be below par performances, although the ex Saints prodigy did begin to rack up successive starts with a number of quality performances before the incident.

The 27-year-old has been fuming ever since he was left out of the squad for the North London derby.

Should Rose move to Old Trafford, it is likely he would double the £80,000-a-week he is now earning at Spurs.

Mourinho is also conscious of his former Real Madrid player Mesut Ozil's contract situation at Arsenal, with his deal set to run out of the end of the season, but it is expected United would try to get him then rather than prise him away from the Emirates for a fee in January.

The Fulham youngster is also even-money to make the white half of North London his next destination, making Tottenham clear favourites for his signature.

Rose is the main full-back target as it stands, and would cost up to £50m from Tottenham, but United sources say the Old Trafford hierarchy feel the fact he has not been in Mauricio Pochettino's team as much of late could aid them.

United are also believed to be open to exploit Tottenham's apparent interest in Shaw, who worked with Pochettino while at Southampton, but Spurs are not keen on a part-exchange deal involving in the seven-time England worldwide.
